Fart cookies are by far the most requested cookie in our house.
And it has long been misappropriately named. Often called the ‘no-bake’ cookie, or other similar names. But in our house, we have renamed it…the fart cookie. It’s now the popular favorite cookie request from our children, and they love their cookie.
Why the fart cookie? The combination of oatmeal, peanut butter and cocoa when combined together forms a unique and rather distinct combination in the stomach which by morning causes an orchestra of noises at the breakfast table. Don’t get me wrong. This cookie is delicious! But breakfast time at our house? Maybe you should pass...
- 2 cups sugar
- ½ cup butter
- 2 tbsp cocoa
- ½ cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- ½ cup peanut butter
- 3 cups oatmeal
- In a large saucepan set to medium heat, bring to a rolling boil the sugar, butter, milk and cocoa. Boil for one minute. Remove from heat and add peanut butter, vanilla, and oatmeal and stir until well blended. Spoon by tablespoons onto waxed paper and let set until cool.
We use coconut sugar in place of regular sugar from time to time. You can also substitute another type of nut butter for the peanut butter and use gluten free oats instead of regular oats. And we often use dairy free alternatives in place of the butter and milk.
